2015 Auckland champions Stonehenge

They beat the House Crashers team of Kenny Williamson and Anthony Derrick, with spares Emily Whelan and Claire Suen filling in for regulars Allan Barclay and Logan Barclay.

The final went to an extra end when House Crashers stole 3 in the eighth end to level the scores at 10-10, but Stonehenge won the deciding end for their second trophy of the season. The side had won the round robin trophy two weeks earlier.

Winter Games NZ

18 Aug 2015 – Auckland Curling's August newsletter covers the recent discussion with Paradice to try and get some resolution to the ongpong problem of uneven ice on the outer two sheets. Despite the best efforts of Paradice staff they had reached the stage of being virtually unplayable on some nights.

We are cautiously optimistic of some improvement, and will confirm the draw for this Sunday (23rd) after the schools session on Thursday evening.

The newsletter also looks forward to the international events for NZ teams over the next few months, starting next week with the Audi quattro Winter Games NZ.

Come curling in Auckland

15 May 2015 – Auckland Curling's season will open with a social mini-bonspiel this Sunday 17th May. This will comprise short 3-end games throughout the evening.

Most teams will be "mix and match" drawn from a hat – but if new curlers have already formed a team and want to play together then that's fine too! Please bring nibbles to share. Not everyone will be playing at once so there will be plenty of time to socialise.

And if you want to play this season – every week, most weeks or occasionally – then now is the time to sign up and let us know.
